The 1994 LDI Convention, Reno, Nevada

 

At a Trade Show in 1994 to launch a new lighting product called Cyberlight (produced by American lighting company High End Systems) there was a legendary coming together of lightshow operators in a celebration of the end of the Sixties.

 

From the UK was John Andrews (Acidica Lights), Peter Wynne-Willson (Pink Floyd), John Lethbridge (Cerebrum) and Neil Rice (Optikinetics) and from the USA was Lowell Fowler (High End Systems/Prosperity Blackstone Lightshow), Wavy Gravy (Hog Farm), Dr. Timothy Leary, Jerry Abrams (Headlights) and Jefferson Starship.

 

Jerry Abrams recreated a Sixties light show with his extensive array of light show equipment that he was projecting onto a screen. This was then captured on video and displayed on a mesh screen that had been created using four Barco high-powered video projectors. In a clever blend of old technology meets new the audience could pick whichever world — the old or the new — they wished to enjoy at any time.

 

Timothy Leary had excerpts from his book, Chaos and the Cyberculture displayed as performance art in a booth and Wavy Gravy MC'd the proceedings in his usual inimitable style.

 

As well as Jerry Abrams, many of the UK visitors got their hands on some Solar 250's and Solar 575s and projected slides during the event that saw cutting edge Nineties lighting technology up against ancient low-wattage projection equipment from the Sixties.
